Charlie Byrd Tribute

Mainstay favorite Chuck Redd brings an all-star group to The Mainstay to celebrate the legacy of legendary jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd! $25 online advance and $30 phone reservations/door.

 

Chuck Redd’s career as a jazz vibraphonist and drummer has taken him across decades and around the globe, but he got his start with the Charlie Byrd Trio at the age of 21. He toured and recorded with Byrd for nearly 20 years. Now, he pulls out all the stops to lead an all-star tribute to his mentor and friend Charlie Byrd, the American guitarist who brought who (along with Stan Getz on sax) brought Bossa Nova to the world, who introduced classical guitar to jazz, whose sophisticated arrangements of popular tunes continue to enchant listeners and who was a major figure in the early success of The Mainstay.  This concert is supported in part by Charlie’s wife Becky Byrd.  This concert is also funded through The Mainstay’s Chuck Redd Fund initiative to bring world class talent to Rock Hall.

Joining Chuck Redd on vibes is Mainstay stalwart bassist Tommy Cecil.They will be joined by Nate Najar, a virtuoso who much like Byrd, plays jazz on the classical guitar. Byrd’s widow, Becky Byrd, says: "There is no doubt that there is a piece of Charlie's soul in Nate's mind, heart and fingers. And in her first appearance at The Mainstay, brilliant Brazilian vocalist Daniela Soledade will join the band. They will play music from the iconic, groundbreaking Charlie Byrd/Stan Getz album Jazz Samba, music made popular by Byrd’s group The Great Guitars and other music associated with Byrd from both his live performances and from his many, many recordings.
